The fully cloud-based platform will be an integral part of our work, You’ll be responsible for making sure that it is enabled by robust, repeatable and automated processes from the outset with lean, fit for purpose, documentation and processes that meet regulatory requirements, helping to have a tangible effect on the success of our clinical trials and ultimately ensure we achieve our vision of reducing the barriers in the development of better treatments for common diseases and health outcomes for the wider public.

Protas is an independent not-for-profit organisation, designing and delivering large, global randomized clinical trials of treatments for common and other life-threatening diseases. Protas is led by the epidemiologist and physician, Professor Sir Martin Landray, who has over 20 years’ experience of leading large, randomized clinical trials as part of a team at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Population Health. Most recently, he has been co-leading the landmark RECOVERY clinical trial into treatments for COVID-19 which identified that treatment with the inexpensive steroid drug dexamethasone, improved the chances of survival for the most severe cases. It’s an incredibly rewarding place to work where you’ll be surrounded by supportive colleagues who are experts in their own field of excellence. It’s an exciting time to start with us.
You will have broad software quality assurance experience and experience in software verification and validation within healthcare or pharma. Ideally you will have worked with development teams and suppliers working to DevOps and agile practices, as well as have a good understanding of software development and delivery processes. You will have experience in maintaining a software quality management system and validation documentation meeting regulatory requirements in an agile environment. You’ll also have experience working with regulators and / or auditors demonstrating that development and validation approaches and systems meet regulatory requirements. You’re someone who can plan and execute strategy and yet never lose sight of the operational side or of the importance of the details.
Finally, you will have experience in working with third-party geographically distributed teams. Experience validating solutions used in the context of Clinical Trials is desirable.
